The woman who allegedly told a bunch of young girls in Gurugram that they “deserve to get raped” because of the length of their dresses has tendered an apology.

In a Facebook post written on Wednesday night, 1 May, the woman said, “I extend an unconditional apology to all the girls. In hindsight, I realise, I was harsh and incorrect in my statement.”

She also added that she was “concerned” for the girls but should have offered her opinion in private.

“I was concerned, however, I realise that I should have been protective and progressive in my outlook and not conservative and regressive. As a wife, sister and a mother and more importantly as a woman, I value ever woman’s dignity (sic).”
